In the most obvious news of the day, Warner is officially fast-tracking a sequel to Man Of Steel. Director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David Goyer are already signed for a sequel. Deadline says Goyer’s original deal with Warner is to write two Man Of Steel films and a Justice League script which includes Superman. That was news to us. Last we heard, Will Beall (Gangster Squad) wrote a Justice League script which the studio threw out.
Finding out Goyer is already on a replacement Justice League script and Warner’s already greenlit a Man Of Steel sequel bodes very well for Justice League‘s chances. We already knew they’d commit to making Justice League if Man Of Steel did well, and Zack Snyder has already agreed to direct it.
If that good news wasn’t exciting enough, we also have two clips from Man Of Steel. In the first, Superman’s biological parents Jor-El and Lara Lor-Van (played by Russell Crowe and Ayelet Zurer) prepare to send their baby to Earth because “Krypton is doomed.” The second clip is an extended version of a scene we’ve seen before, in which Lois Lane and Superman first meet. Superman can’t be controlled, y’all.
